Hong Kong: Over Budget and Over Packed!

March 11, 2011

overcast 68 °F

We started our day once again by packing our bags, showering, and prepping for another night of travel. We are getting good at this but Ruby keeps buying stuff to test if Tony will be able to fit just one more thing in the bags? Well the bags are holding strong and the only zipper that broke is the one on the outside of Ruby’s bag and we should be able to fit one or two more pairs of shoes! :) We took the subway over to the ladies market and started with a lunch at McD’s. Yea, we know fast food again! Ruby haggled with people so hard that I would see them cursing us on our way out. Well, it was a long day and after two trips to the ATM we’re clearly over our daily budget. And with no more room in Tony’s arms for bags we started on our way home. On the subway home we stopped at Beard Papa for delicious cream puffs. We were exhausted and broke! So we chose the easiest and cheapest option for getting to the airport—the A21 bus! At the airport we had the best Asian food we’ve had in Hong Kong; it was a noodle spot that was so yummy that we almost have to give our first airport FOODIE alert. We hopped on a plane and caught up on some movies while drinking wine. Ruby loved Black Swan and Tony watched just about every bad comedy available on our way to a new continent. Sadly, we heard the news about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan just as we were leaving.
